Disgruntled football videogame fans are suing Electronic Arts over the Madden series' exclusive rights to NFL properties.

The class action suit alleges that EA's exclusive deal with the NFL creates unfair trade practices by preventing other companies (specifically Take Two) from using the names and likenesses of NFL players.

Hmmm...we're not lawyers (except in Guam), but it seems like an agreement between two private companies doesn't really affect gamers... but, hey, whatever, if this can bring back viable football alternatives to Madden, we're all for it.
